Below the peak of the Holy Mountain, Belltail is a small town located next to the Lykaom grounds. Its bustling streets provide enterprise for many an inn keeper and bartender as pilgrims flock through to see the Holy Mountain and visit the sanctuaries there. The pride of the town however, lies in the services of the Sacred Band soldiers who are selected from Belltail’s, and only Belltail’s, young inhabitants. Many are the travellers who hoped to enter the ranks of the elite adventures, but none among them, and few among the children of those who decided to stay are ever selected for training. Some say it is the earth that fostered the many generations of Belltailians in service, others a xenophobic tradition.
